VOGUE AUSTRALIA JULY COVER STAR REVEALED
Vogue Australia today revealed the cover star of its July issue, Australian sweetheart, Delta Goodrem. The subject of much press, and a paparazzo’s dream, Vogue Australia reveals Goodrem in a light never before seen, a true Vogue girl.
Delta Goodrem is one of Australia’s most successful recording artists ever. She has fought for her life and won. But the rebirth of Delta Goodrem is only just getting started and as the cover girl of their July issue, Vogue Australia challenges anyone to deny Delta the credibility and praise she deserves. The subject of at times vicious insults, Vogue Australia wanted everyone to see Delta for the natural beauty she is (and that’s not even starting on her talent).
Vogue Australia Features Director, Alexandra Spring, says: “Ever since an 18-year-old Goodrem burst onto the music scene in 2003 with the heartfelt Born to Try, Goodrem has had the unerring ability to connect with her audience with her unflinching honesty”. 10 years after her first number one, Goodrem is experiencing a renaissance, thanks partly to her coaching role on the Nine Network’s The Voice. Spring continues:
“It would be fair to say that viewers are seeing a different side to Our Delta. We wanted to show her a little more raw and sensual; to let he natural beauty shine through. Gone is the shy, demure teen, behold a feistier and unashamedly ambitious Goodrem, who wants to win”.
Goodrem tells Vogue Australia, “My whole life, I did believe that anything is possible … I’m very calm but when it comes time to play and perform, it’s a different energy”. No one could possibly deny Goodrem the fact she is determined, adamant to be a good role model with a positive message. Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 18, Goodrem tells Vogue Australia that “you look at the world differently, you get very dark colours and nothing can stay the same after that”. Having since been given a clean bill of health, adds, “I’m thankful for the depth it’s given me, the different perspectives”.
When asked about relationships and in particular her seven year relationship with Brian McFadden, which ended in April 2011, Goodrem admits, “There is so much I’d like to say. I was really unhappy and I didn’t know how to get out. I learnt. I got there in the end”; And of her short affair with the youngest Jonas brother, Nick? Goodrem admits a case of rebounding from one extreme to another. “But I only have good things to say about Nick” she adds.
The contagious positivity that Goodrem radiates when looking back on any number of experiences of her life is inspiring and unfailing, and what Vogue Australia has aptly labelled in their July issue as the Delta Force.
